    Well, I had a question.


    First of all here's my DSi.

    My issue now is, the hinge in the red stroke is pretty loose.
    If I grab the top screen, and pull it slightly, it will lift of like 1mm, but the other hinge, won't even budge.

    Is this normal? Cause I'm pretty annoyed by this, since I like my gadgets to be solid and strong.

    Damn... I just searched around, and it seems EVERYONE, on EVERY DS has this, be it the old fat, lite, dsi, xl.

    There's gotta be something to fix this...
    Maybe opening it up and seeing if the screw is loose and then tightening it would do it?

    If I remember correctly, only the DS Lites had serious hinge issues. As far as I know, it's got fixed with the DSi/DSi XL.

    So, how is that even possible?

    I have this problem too on my DS Lite. Original DS has no problems, even if it is 2 years older.

    Does anyone have any idea whats beneath the casing?

    Any screws that hold the hinge together?
    Cause if there are, I can try to tighten them :S.

    I don't feel like voiding my warranty for nothing, since I bought my DSi almost no week ago.

    I can't really feel it (because I have a guard case on my dsi) but on my ds lite I noticed the was a small gap in the hinge you were talking about and it just annoyed me because I thought it doesn't happen to everyone else.But now I know
